Seven Top Authoring Tools

By Joe Ganci

“You choose the tools you need depending on the instructional design you need to implement, the venues to which you need to deliver, your budget and schedule, and other factors. I hope this table helps you to reach your eLearning goals.”

Recently the eLearning Guild published a research report written by yours truly, entitled Rapid eLearning Authoring: Top Tools, in which I analyzed the results of the continuous surveys to which thousands of Guild members respond. The results proved enlightening. In the report, I lay the groundwork for understanding and adopting tools, and then cover in good detail each of the top-seven tools. If you are a paid Guild member, I encourage you to download the report.

Following the publication of that report, I thought it would make sense to take the seven tools that survey respondents reported using the most and compare their features for you. While it is not always easy to compare the power and ease of use of two tools, it is certainly possible to place the features most people want and expect in an eLearning development tool side-by-side and review them.

However, it’s important to note that not all apples are the same: two applications may claim that they allow you to create quizzes, but one may let you create much more powerful quizzes than the other. For that reason, I decided to indicate whether a feature is partially supported or fully supported.
